The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Reviva

The Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is just that, we are a movement that believes our country is in a deep moral crisis, and that our system is in need of restructuring. We hope to change the narratives surrounding poverty, and to highlight how the four evils of racism, poverty, the war economy, and ecological devastations are systematically upheld by capitalism. This May, our organization will launch a 40 Days of Action campaign. People from all over the country will be gathering at their state capitals to participate in Non-Violent Moral Direct Action, Political Education, and Arts and Culture events. In the words of the movement's original founder, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "There can be no gainsaying of the fact that a great revolution is taking place in the world today. In a sense it is a triple revolution; that is a technological revolution, with the impact of automation and cybernation; then there is a revolution of weaponry, with the emergence of atomic and nuclear weapon of warfare. Then there is a human rights revolution, with the freedom explosion that is taking place all over the world."
